listen to iPhone mailbox: This is how easy it works!

You want to listen to your iPhone mailbox and don't know exactly how to do it? We'll be happy to show you in this article!

listen to iPhone mailbox

While it used to be expensive and time-consuming to be able to listen to the iPhone mailbox, this is absolutely no longer the case today. The technology has changed, so that the mailbox on the iPhone is now free. In this article we want to show you how the mailbox works and how you can listen to iPhone mailbox, delete but also share.

set up iPhone Mailbox

The mailbox or “voicemail”, as it is called on the iPhone, can be found in the phone app on your smartphone. First open the phone app and click on “Voicemail” in the bottom right corner.

When you open it for the first time, you will be prompted to set a password for your mailbox and record a greeting. The latter will be played to callers who cannot reach you at the moment. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open the phone app
  2. Click on “Voicemail” at the bottom right
  3. Now select “Set up now”
  4. Now think of a password that should protect your mailbox
  5. Now choose your greeting. You can choose between “Default” or “Custom”. The “Standard” setting ensures that a computer voice greets the caller. With “Own” you can record a personal message.

That’s all there is to it. From now on, the mailbox will take care of it when you either can’t answer your iPhone or there is no reception at the moment.

listen to iPhone mailbox

There are two ways to listen to your iPhone mailbox. Either you go through the phone app or you use voice control with Siri to find out if there is a new voicemail. We will now show you both ways:

listen to iPhone voicemail via the phone app

The way via the phone app is simple and clear, because you can immediately see which contact has called, when the message is from and how long the person has been talking. This is how you proceed:

  1. Open the phone app again
  2. Go to “Voicemail” at the bottom of the screen
  3. Click on a message from this list
  4. Then select the play icon to play the message. By the way: If you click on the speaker icon, the message will be played loudly (so you don’t have to hold the iPhone to your ear)

listen to iPhone voicemail via Siri

If you want to listen to your iPhone mailbox while driving or in any other difficult situation, you have another option. You can also listen to your voicemail via Siri. You have two options:

Have iPhone mailbox read aloud
  • Want to hear the latest message? Then say, “Have I received any new voicemails?”
  • Do you want to listen to the last message of a certain person? Then say: “Play the voice message from XY” (where “XY” is the name from the address book)

delete iPhone mailbox messages

With the time of iPhone mailbox listening, you already accumulate a lot of messages that you might just want to delete. If that’s the case, here’s how to do it:

Delete a message

First, we will show you how to delete a specific message:
